Are you saying they were in the Infirmary not a workhouse?

If yes is it possible to get any images of those records or not.

Many thanks for your help and everyone else for their help. It must have been very hard in those days in Whitechapel

... but I do not know where her husband also named George is.

George was probably working at Martineau's in Goulston St in the early 1860s. One possibility is that George lost his job in the London refinery (this was the time of the decline-to-almost-zero of sugar refining in the East End) and went off the seek work elsewhere, leaving the family for longer than expected. They are back together again in 1871 in Liverpool where Geo is listed as a warehouseman (possibly sugar), and then in Liverpool in 1881 where Geo is refining again.
Almeroth, Germany (probably Hessen).

It's the reference given on ancestry, just under the part you quoted.
Which seems to match up to Whitechapel Infirmary in the LMA catalogue.
Whatever it is, one or two pages may be available.
Rosina Appleton, 37, admitted 23 Jan 1862, and with that same reference is here (hopefully!)

Alexj, I started a thread on this problem yesterday. There is much more information there.  If you are competent to do so try deleting your cookies. It's not a 100% fix, but I ended up getting access to a lot more than I should have done, but I didn't get access to one particular record I'd never found before so it's back to the library for me.

I have just discovered via the free weekend on Ancestry that my Ancestors from Germany ended up in the Tower Hamlets , Stepney workhouse.

I have tried to access the Ancestry files online to see any documents regarding to them but to no avail. I just get a standard screen.

In case you don't know, ancestry are having another free weekend. And this time the image is available!
